The House is stepping up its cybersecurity as members prepare for the August recess.
Beginning Saturday, users will be locked out of computers on the House network after 20 minutes of inactivity and required to re-enter their passwords to regain access.
House Chief Administrative Officer Dan Strodel announced the changes on Tuesday in an email to members and staff. He noted that the screensaver lockout “will help prevent unauthorized access to your files and credentials.”
